A shelter for abandoned and suffered from women’s violence men may soon open in Berlin. According to the official statistics, women and men are equally guilty of the family conflicts. Moreover, women perform acts of violence in ten percent of cases. A spokesman for the Frankfort center for men’s problems Johan Hofmann said that men could be victims very often. Hofmann asserted that there are a lot of men, who suffer from violence at home, and the society has a fake conception of the relationships between the sexes. The representatives of the center hope that the new shelter will help to improve the situation to a certain extent.
